09. Cate Le Bon – “Rock Pool”

 Kate Bush, Sigur Rós, and Cloud Nothings Top Our Top Songs of the Week (11/25)

Welsh singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon is prepping the release of an EP called Rock Pool, composed of tracks cut from the sessions of this year’s Crab Day — the “killed darlings,” as she puts it. Considering the vibrant life of the EP’s title track, it’s hard to imagine how this song ever was able to be killed in the first place. The shambolic guitars and sharp-turning vocal lines recall Deerhoof, though the loose and rumbly percussion (courtesy of Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa) and tinny bass strike closer to Tom Waits’ recent output. “I’m only living in a rock pool world,” Le Bon repeats on the hook, chops of electric guitar trailing her words. Grab this and the other killed darlings of Rock Pool on January 27th, via Drag City–Adam Kivel
